My naming dilemma....

I know in scheme of things this is not really an issue, but I still would like advice :)



My name, my dhs name and our sons name start with a B. We didnt name our son specifically so it could start with a B, it just ended up that thats the name we finally agreed on. So now my problem is, with a new baby on the way, does his/her name have to start with a B? I never really thought about it, and didnt figure it would matter, but I have been told that new baby will feel left out if the name is different....



What do you ladies think? Does it really matter?

That's the silliest thing I've ever heard. 'New baby" won't even know his name is different in that way until he's 4-6 years old. 

Also it's likely that the kid will call you guys mom and dad and not by your first names

Yes, but at 4, are they going to be like "why dont you love me enough" lol I know it is stupid. Like i said, I never even realized it could be an issue til people started mentioning it

I think it's cheesy when family members' names all start with the same letter.

I don't think it would matter that much.
